Contents: Before there was America --
Before I knew that there was America --
I found an endless land --
Before there was an America --
We called ourselves Bostonians --
We raised up factories and farms, great houses and small --
We were willing to die to forge our dream --
Like clumsy children we fell --
We moved on stubbornly --
We were machines belching smoke --
We were the flat gold plains of Kansas --
We are America --
And from the tensions --
To each child a freedom dream.
Responsibility: Walter Dean Myers ; [illustrated by] Christopher Myers.

Examines the events and people that have shaped America, providing portraits of figures such as Chief Tecumseh, President Abraham Lincoln, and musician Jimi Hendrix, and featuring lyrical, free-verse poetic text.
